Mamman Sani Abdoulaye, a legendary name amongst Niger's avant garde, presents a singularly unique recording of minimalist organ music from the Sahara. Dreamy and hypnotic, the sound is unlike anything coming out of West Africa before or since, closer in effect to early electronic experiments of Kraftwerk.
Recorded in 1981 at the National Radio in Niger, shortly after Mamman discovered an old Italian organ, the album was a spontaneous production, recorded in two takes. It was released on cassette but was a commercial failure, and only a handful were sold. The recordings, however, were a success, and became the themes to the National radio for the subsequent 30 years, securing Mamman's place in the foundation of Nigerien music.
Rediscovered in a cassette archive in Niger and digitized on a portable recorder, 'La Musique Electronique Du Niger' was reissued in 2013 on limited vinyl. Now restored and remastered from the original tape material by Jessica Thompson.

Also available: LA MUSIQUE ELECTRONIQUE DU NIGER (CD).
